Thanks mate. I should have put that in my post. I DID mean grow logs.
Anyone can take pics, sure. But everyone can tell there's something off when the background constantly changes and the plant seems to change leafshape, post and shade of green.
And, let's be honest, just by reading what they are doing or saying about growing, one can tell if that person knows his shit or if he is a keyboard jockey.
Seedbanks love the almost free publicity. So they pick people they know will be able to produce some lovely results. Those results get them paying customers. And if a grower takes awesome picks, those will sometimes be used for future promotional material.
That's why I said: show them what you can do. Consistent results can get you seeds.
